Technical Update: April 18, 2016

Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bug Fixes

  • We recently fixed an issue where the Help:Chat right rail module was not updating correctly.
  • We recently identified and fixed a situation that could cause a user to receive an unexpectedly large number of followed page emails.
  • We will fix a case which could cause chat messages to fail to go through.

Other Notable Changes

Detailed CSS updates can be found at - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.

  • We will add a special page that lists all chat bans on a community, found at Special:ChatBanList (similar to Special:BlockList).
